Mitch Fischer and the Ironwood Ridge Nighthawks swarmed Tucson High Friday night, winning 49-0.

In the first play from scrimmage, Fischer ran 36 yards to pay dirt, giving the Nighthawks a 7-0 lead.

In the next offensive drive, it was Fischer again. The tailback took the handoff, and after a couple of spin moves, ran 74 yards for the score with 5:43 left in the first quarter.

In two carries, Fischer had 110 yards and two touchdowns. He scored one more touchdown from a yard out before halftime.

With a running touchdown and two passing scores, quarterback Tyler Williams also had a big night.

Before halftime, the Nighthawks led 42-0.

In the second half, Williams would throw for one more touchdown before calling it a night, giving Ironwood Ridge the 49-0 victory.

Besides a strong offensive performance, the Ironwood Ridge defense had a big night with two interceptions and one fumble recovery.

The Nighthawks are currently 3-0 in the region.

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
